And so we see yet another week with the Top Band contestants doing well on the chart. Although in a way I would’ve had even more hope for the future of indie music in Korea had they dominated the top I Am A Singer style, it’s great to see that the show at least has some impact.

Acoustic duo Acoustic Collabo released first album Unplugged on October 10. It gathers all the songs from the duo’s previous releases: Love Is The Key, Makes Sweet Love and 한여름 밤의. To hear more of their sound, check out the old music videos: Promise, Love Valentine.
On October 13 Ibadi released second full length album Voyage. It’s been three and a half years since the album debut, but fans have continuously been treated to new songs from the modern folk/acoustic pop band fronted by Clazziquai‘s Horan since. The new album includes an album version of the three year old Listen Campaign track 두근두근, a steel guitar version of Songs for Ophelia track Curtain Call as well as a classic version of 탄야 from the same EP, a remix version of Morning Call from the 지금 사랑하지 않는 자, 모두 유죄 single, and a remix version of 산책 from the single with the same name.
Boohwal‘s 4th album vocalist Kim Jae Hee has been releasing a number of solo albums over the past decade and a half, but on October 12 came his first digital single, aptly titled 김재희 싱글 Vol.1.
Singer/songwriter Lee YounHyuk has gotten himself a band and together released the first single, Debut, on October 7.
